Whitehall (Ohio, US): William Charles “Charlie” McMillian could also be moist behind the ears, however he’s all set to shoulder fairly a couple of tasks: The seven-month-old boy has been unveiled because the youngest Mayor within the US.
The toddler — who grew to become an honorary Mayor of Whitehall, Texas, through the weekend — will toddle by means of his one-year tenure with the slogan: “Make America Kind Again”.
Mayor Charlie was all decked up in a black tuxedo — forgive his slobbering, if you’ll — as round 150 visitors celebrated his appointment on the Whitehall Group Centre a couple of days again.
The “swearing-in” ceremony was held as he was “elected” in October to serve the native communities in Grimes County.
Newsweek reported that Charlie “stood” on the rostrum together with his adoptive mother and father Chad and Nancy McMillian as members from the native communities seemed on.
Because the glad child kicked about and prattled, a band performed patriotic music. Performances from a neighborhood high-school dance group and a mock secret service have been the opposite highlights.
Charlie’s customised oath of workplace went off like this: “I, William Charles McMillan, do solemnly promise that I will faithfully execute the office of the Mayor of Whitehall and will to the best of my ability: Be kind to everyone on the playground, promote life, adoption and good, clean country living, pave all the gravel roads, take cookies to the Volunteer Fire Department, catch the biggest catfish, and preserve, protect and defend the community of Whitehall, so help me, Mom and Dad!”
The honourary Mayor’s position is auctioned off to the very best bidder yearly throughout an annual BBQ Fundraiser.
On October 20, Charlie was pronounced this 12 months’s winner, entitling him to a year-long time period.
Charlie’s adoptive mom Nancy stated: “Whether you’re a Democrat, a Republican or an Independent, Charlie loves ya.”
Maybe the rigours of the ceremony itself appeared to weigh heavy on Charlie’s thoughts as he was seen falling asleep on the lap of one of many dance performers within the night hours.
“I think the event really wore him out,” his mom stated.
Subsequent month, the McMillians will go to Washington DC to satisfy Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
